Are you worried about your leather sofa that has become filthy and needs immediate cleaning but you can’t understand how to do that safely? Don’t worry we’re here for your rescue.
We will be showing you the steps that you can adopt to clean your leather sofa in the safest way without leaving a mark of damage on its surface.
Step 1:Take a vacuum cleaner attaching a soft brush to it. Take the cleaner all over the leather surface. Make sure that the dust particles of the crevices are sucked up well. Remember that dust particles may worsen the surface condition when you apply cleaner upon them.
Step 2: Produce a solution of cleaning. You can do it in two ways. Firstly, you can create it by mixing white vinegar and pure water together. Keep in mind that the volume of both must be equal.
Secondly, to create the solution you can adopt any quality commercial leather cleaner. Simply leave a few drops of the cleaner into water and mix the two properly.
Step 3: Take the soft clean rag piece, here if possible, you should take a piece of microfiber rag. Now, dip the rag piece into the solution. Take it up and squeeze sufficiently to make sure that it’s not filled with solution and solution is dropping.
Step 4: Keep wiping the whole sofa surface with the rag piece. Take breaks frequently to dip it into the solution again. Don’t forget squeezing well.
Step 5: Have a clean towel that doesn’t leave thread particles when come to contact of wet surface. Rub the towel all over the sofa surface.
Here, you mustn’t dare use a dryer. That will obviously complete the process faster but the leather will become dehydrated. This will definitely make you suffer in the long run.
Step 6: Here comes the phase of conditioning. Before applying conditioner, you must create it by yourself to ensure 100% quality. But, how can you do that?
Well, take white vinegar and oil either of flaxseed or linseed and mix the two well. Remember that the ratio of vinegar and water must be 1:2.
After producing the conditioner, now dip that soft rag piece into it. Squeeze the rag well and rub it all over the sofa surface. Now, leave the sofa for 10 to 12 hours at least.
Step 7: Is the time over? Then, take a clean rag piece and buff the sofa surface for restoring its shiny condition.
So, this is how you can clean your leather sofa at home environment with the guarantee of security. We recommend you to create the necessary solution by yourself instead of making the purchase. In this way, you can ensure a safer clean.
